    I started having troubles with FF12 and have reverted to 11, which so far seems to be OK.

    FF 13.0.1 version is now out

    What they are doing is copying the Opera Browser with a similar tab feature that leaves short cuts of the web pages you pin to a FF Home page
    You simple single click and you are at the website

    Those familiar with Opera will understand

    Been here before haven't we, discussing the relative merits and demerits of Firefox.

    Personally I don't like this new version...

    Why, oh why, cant they (Mozilla) leave things alone... its getting worse than Wordpress!

    That's the problem though, it is broke.

    unfortunatelyany program made to run on a windows operating system is open to attack. Web browsers are popular, so a wide target.

    You would think though, that going back to a simple interface would be the solution, instead of all these "features" making it easier to find holes.

    I believe these "new features" are added to hide security overhauls, so its not "yet another patch".
    Always remember you're unique.


    ...Just like everyone else!

    I'm a little late catching up with this thread, sorry

    I found these basic instructions re: the zoom function for popular browsers although I like the add-on for FF that Canuck suggested :

    Basics: Make text larger

    Hi abseh, I really dislike this feature in FF13 - for those who don't like it either, the instructions for how to turn it off or manage it are given at the start of this thread :

    FF 13 - New Tab feature


    I would also change browsers if I could find something I liked - FF is being messed around too much for my liking.
    Today is the dawn of another error ...
